2015 Beginner Training Program


The 2015 Hot Chocolate 10K would like to express an enormous amount of thanks to Coaches Dean Duncan and Norm Blair of FITAthletics, a full-service athletic and fitness training service based in western North Carolina, for developing both a BEGINNER and INTERMEDIATE 10K training program specifically tailored to our race. A program like this is indespensible when training for an event. Please consult an experienced physician before starting any exercise program.

A note from coach Dean Duncan

The following program is for the beginning runner wishing to complete their first 10k race. The program is a 12 week progression of easy running combined with walking. Participants will build to 80 min of continuous running and walking prior to the event.

The overall intensity of this program is designed to be easy. The goal is to finish…not run a fast time! The paces of each session are set approximately between 12 and 16 minutes per mile, however efforts should always be kept easy and/or aerobic in nature. Breathing should be controlled and comfortable. If you bring along a friend…a good idea, the intensity should always be low enough to maintain a conversation. Also, have fun!
